I’ve been driving for a week or more now without a horn (My car caught the flu) and I must say it changed slightly the way I drive in Lebanon. I am relatively a calm driver but a honk is always needed with all the assholes out there trying to cut you off or crossing a red light.

Now that I have no car horn, I got used to avoiding situations where I needed it as I found myself helpless when people would cut me off or throw their cars in front of mine.

Having said that, maybe we should ban car horns in Lebanon and fine drivers using them on the highways and main roads, that way Lebanese who actually care about their cars will drive more calmly and responsibly.

This is probably never gonna happen but maybe we could start by calling for a honk-free day.
